The Greg Brady Project

Welcome to the official Barry Williams' blog

My friends call me Barry. From time to time I also hear the name Greg. Yeah, as in Greg Brady. The Brady Bunch represents a fun time in my life. But it’s only part of the story. There’s more to say and that’s what The Greg Brady Project is all about – a place to say it. So, I’ve invited some friends to join me and share their perspectives on the Brady’s, the 70′s and just about everything else. Now, I’m inviting you…

Farewell Johnny

‘My Friend Johnny Grant’

I was saddened to learn of the passing of Hollywood’s Honorary Mayor, Johnny Grant this past Wednesday. Johnny was the torch and the light of Hollywood. He was a great ambassador for the city. I have had a chance to be with him on various occasions and twice in the past year. Once was at the Hollywood Museum and just three months ago at the dedication of an enormous 600 million dollar development in the Hollywood & Vine area that was just breaking ground. He arrived in a wheelchair, but stood and delivered a wonderful talk about what a great impact this project will have on the city. His passion resonated throughout the Pantages Theatre, where the dedication was being held, and an inspiration for me watching one of his life long dreams was about to become a reality.

When the condominiums, apartments and retail space are completed, I plan to go into the new W Hotel that is being built and drink a toast to Hollywood’s finest Mayor, Johnny Grant.
